Abstract

The experience of the health protection legal regulation during the spread of a new coronavirus infection (SARS-CoV-2) is presented. The key areas that required a number of state decisions to ensure the sanitary and epidemiological well-being of the Russian Federation and the protection of citizens are outlined: assigning the Government of the Russian Federation and State authorities of the Russian Federation subjects the authority to regulate special health protection; introducing responsibility for non-compliance with the rules of conduct in an emergency or threat of its occurrence; providing citizens with medicines, medical devices and personal protective equipment; construction, re-profiling and financing of medical organizations; support for medical workers, implementation of incentive payments. The review is based on the analysis of normative legal acts adopted by legislative and Executive authorities at all levels, their interaction, as well as the work carried out by the State Duma, the State Duma Committee on health protection, and parliamentary control. The proposals of the State Duma Committee on health protection on further improvement of the legislation of the Russian Federation in the field of health protection are reflected.
